Steen Family

Post by AZ-Evans » Mon Aug 18, 2014 4:51 am

My name is Danny. I live in Arizona, USA....I am looking for information on the Steen family that lived in Clogher around the 1860s-1880s. In particular:

Hugh Steen Born in 1790, died 1876
Mary Steen, Hugh's Wife...Born 1794, died April 1884
Rebecca Steen, daughter of Hugh and Mary, born in 1835, died in 1916
Alexander Steen, son of Hugh and Mary...Born May 1816, Died February 1888

Hugh and Alexander were tenant farmers. I have also noticed that there is an Alexander Steen who was a shopkeeper. Not sure if they are one and the same.

I have received confirmation from the church records that they are buried at St. Muadhan Church of Ireland, Errigal Truagh.

I have very little additional information since I am just now researching this branch of my family tree. Rebecca was an aunt to my great grandfather, John A. Steen, who I believe was born in 1858 in Rockcorrie and moved to Chicago, Illinois in 1871.
